An evaluation of a global health initiative

Written task enabling students to apply their understanding of global health and sustainability by designing an evaluation of a global health initiative. High blood pressure is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease which is a major contributor to the global burden of disease. Excess dietary salt intake is well established as a leading cause of high blood pressure and associated cardiovascular disease, yet current salt intake in most populations worldwide is approximately 9–12 grams per day, in excess of WHO reccommendations. Salt reduction is emerging as one of the most cost-effective, feasible, and affordable strategies for control of blood pressure and cardiovascular disease prevention globally which would see a potential 1.65 million cardiovascular disease-related deaths prevented each year worldwide. Identify a global iniitiave to reduce sodium comsumption. Examples include the committment of the Government of India to achieving a 30 per cent reduction in salt intake by 2025, and the UK Food Standards Agency salt reduction strategy.
